hard to link on this here phone but the best one ever done is 07-19-1989, this is also on youtube. For other great version check out 03-27-1985, 12-30-1985 and the second best version 09-24-1988 featuring Mick Taylor on guitar

Try 5-3-91 Cal Expo and 7-26-87 Anaheim. These are just good solid versions.

At the Anaheim show, I had a transcendant moment in which the very important and very deep meaning of the lyric "little red light on the highway, big green light on the speedway" was revealed to me, but the next day (nor ever since) I could not remember what it was!

Me neither. There is sooooo much video in that damn
vault from that period in time. Let it out and let it grow.

I've gotten a lot fonder of West LA since hanging around in this place. Always loved the hypnotic funky hook, but it's just an example for me of getting stopped by the lyrics ... maybe the only one, even. I had the same reaction to it as Disco Dancin: the Dead getting out of their mythic zone and moving into a very modern and hard-edged place that's a lot like, well, my image of L.A.!!! The opposite of SF in feeling/esthetics ... so the whole imagery gets caught up for me in disco and a bunch of people in Go To Heaven leisure suits and it just always threw me.

Of course if it had pre-existed when I got into the band I assume I'd have grandfathered it in, as I mentally did pretty much everything else ... but it didn't, so it was a "new song" that was sort of the Dead going L.A. ...

Not saying that's fair, it was just my reaction. Anyway I deal with that better now, so yeah, this is a great version :-)

Yep! I was there....

I think that that is the only version with -In the Dark-like percussion. Anybody know different?

It's kind of ironic that the majority of the post have a 1987 LA fadeaway. Since Jerry was being a good boy. Singing a song about Belushi being a bad boy. That was such a wonderful venue
